Encounters with myself … others … Life !

Tips for Photography, Prayer … and Life.

I have been participating in a Mundane Monday Challenge created by Jithin @ Photrablogger

 “to find beauty in almost everything. The challenge is simple :  find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.”

I came across this during my ‘retreat’ time today and would like to share with all those participating in the challenge.  It is a great tip on AWARENESS AND PAYING ATTENTION. 

Advice That Applies in More Than One Context

My advice: Slow down. Pause to savor the moment. Breathe deeply. Think about how things smell, what the air feels like on your skin, and look at what you’re seeing: the colors, the shapes, the shadows. Think about how it came to be.

Sound like advice for prayer? It certainly could be applied to that, but the advice comes from Josh Noel in an article on taking amazing travel photos.

At this time of year, when many of us are looking forward to summer vacations, the advice to slow down and pay attention is well-timed—and appropriate for both photography and a life of prayer.

And if you get that great travel shot in a prayerful moment, please share it with us at our sister blog, Picturing God.

    Very practical advice as a I fully subscribe to the idea of breathing and taking in the moment before taking a shot. It doesn’t have to be a technically perfect or anything, it should mean something. 🙂

    Thanks for including me and sharing the “take a moment” post. It was very helpful. At times I also just click and move on to next place thinking I have experienced it.

      How could I not include you? It was you who started me clicking away – and the picture could be you 🙂 If it was not a copy of a post I would have labelled it “Jithin” !! 🙂
      And yes .. we should indeed stop and experience the moment.
